HOUSTON, Texas (Nov. 9, 2022) — Following a yearlong educational commitment Janine K. Iannarelli, president of Par Avion Ltd., has completed all requirements of The American Leadership Forum (ALF) Houston/Gulf Coast Chapter Class LV and has been named a Fellow. Iannarelli, who is the founder and president of international aircraft brokerage firm Par Avion Ltd., was one of 25 fellows to graduate earlier this year after completing an intense training program designed to develop skills and knowledge in Transformational Dialogue, Adaptive and Collaborative Leadership, Emotional Intelligence and Social Change.
“I am honored to have been nominated and selected as an American Leadership Forum Fellow and grateful for the support so many offered during a year that posed challenges that no previous class had faced. Fellow ALF participants and our leaders gave us the tools to arrive at successful conclusions to the questions posed of us and reinforced how a collaborative effort is so much more effective than one voice. My understanding of the importance of team is high as that is what it takes to ensure a successful conclusion to modern day aircraft transactions. I have a profound sense of completion and achievement, and I enjoyed building relationships with leaders from the private, public, and non-profit sectors,” Iannarelli commented.
ALF fellows are faced with not just intellectual challenges, but as well physical as was evidenced during the requisite wilderness experience held at an elevation ranging from 8000-10,000 feet in the Colorado Rockies. Here leadership and support of the group is evident and not surprisingly, Iannarelli was the first in her class to volunteer to climb the cliff wall. About this adventure, she shared: “As is the case with almost any tough situation one faces, the first step is the hardest. However, with commitment and confidence, completion is certain.”
Iannarelli found that being involved in the ALF and becoming an ALF fellow has affirmed the value of ongoing personal development as well as participating in collective thinking and positive, progressive actions for the greater good of humanity. Through the ALF Fellowship, Iannarelli and other members of Class LV broadened their perspectives, and worked collaboratively to serve as catalysts in the region for addressing urgent public concerns.
